The complainant, who is a US citizen, said she was "uncomfortable" with the "dirty, nasty looks" the cricketer gave her and told her fiance that he could have drinks with him if he wished.

"When I tried to turn around and go to my room, he grabbed my hand and tried to kiss me. My fiance said 'listen, she is not any girl like that. Just leave and go back to your room'," she said.

Mr Pomersback then allegedly punched her fiancé several times. "He got injured in his ears. He is not able to hear properly. He was bleeding," she said.

"I come here often to visit my friends and my fiancee.... I was here to see him. I was hanging out with him. He lives in Mumbai," she said.
